Here are some songs that deal with child abuse, if you know any other songs send them to me, [~Crimson Angel~].





Concrete Angel by Martina Mcbride

She walks to school with a lunch she packed
Nobody knows what she's holding back;
Wearing the same dress she wore yesterday,
She hides the bruises with the linen and lace; oh

The teacher wonders but she doesn't ask,
It's hard to see the pain behind the mask;
Bearing the burdon of a secret storm,
Sometimes she wishes she was never born;

Through the wind and the rain,
She stands hard as a stone in a world that she can't rise above;
But her dreams give her wings and she flies to a place where she's loved.

Concrete Angel

Somebody cries in the middle of the night,
The neighbors hear but they turn out the lights;
A fragile soul caught in the hands of fate,
When morning comes it will be too late.

Through the wind and the rain,
She stands hard as a stone in a world that she can't rise above;
But her dreams give her wings and she flies to a place where she's loved.

Concrete Angel

A statue stands in a shaded place,
An angel girl with an upturned face;
Her name is written on a polished rock,
A broken heart that the world forgot.

Through the wind and the rain,
She stands hard as a stone in a world that she can't rise above;
But her dreams give her wings and she flies to a place where she's loved.

Concrete Angel




Dear Mr.Jesus by Klenco Music

Sung by a little girl...

Dear Mr. Jesus I just had to write to you
something really scared me, when I saw it on the news.
The story about a little girl, beaten black and blue.
Jesus, thought I'd take this, right to you.

Dear Mr. Jesus I don't understand,
why they took her mom and dad away,
I know that they don't mean to hit with love and angry hands,
Tell them just how big they are, I pray.

Chorus:
Please don't let them hurt your children...
We need love and shelter from the storm...
Please don't let them hurt your children...
Won't you keep them safe and warm...

Dear Mr. Jesus they say that she may die,
Oh I hope the doctors stop the pain,

I know that you could save her and take her up to the sky,
so she will never have to hurt again.

Chorus:
Please don't let them hurt your children...
We need love and shelter from the storm...
Please don't let them hurt your children...
Won't you keep them safe and warm...

Dear Mr. Jesus please tell me what to do, please don't tell my daddy, that mommy hits me too.



Luka By Suzanne Vega

My name is Luka
I live on the second floor
I live upstairs from you
Yes I think you've seen me before

If you hear something late at night
Some kind of trouble, some kind of fight
Just don't ask me what it was
Just don't ask me what it was

I think it's because I'm clumsy
I try not to talk too loud
Maybe it's because I'm crazy
I try not to act too proud

They only hit until you cry
And after that you don't ask why
You just don't argue anymore
You just don't argue anymore

Yes I think I'm okay
I walked into the door again
Well, if you ask that's what I'll say
And it's not your business anyway

I guess I'd like to be alone
With nothing broken, nothing thrown
Just don't ask me how I am
Just don't ask me how I am




George White's Children by Dave Gray
 
Private George White came back from the war
but our eyes were all closed and nobody saw
except the grandchildren from behind a closed door
just like their parents before them.

His children were singers, dancers, and such
but the life that was theirs melted under his touch
and its other men now that bear the hate
Private George White used to create.

Sing me a reason, sing me a rhyme
tell me why these things must be
Maybe the people, perhaps the time
I only know I want kids to grow up to be free.

They say that he died in 65'
well I know that he left at least four shattered lives
He's under the earth and now resting well
while his family continue in their living hell.

For all of George White's children have grown
they're older now with kids of their own
and the great-grand children are running from home
just like their parents before them.

Sing me a reason, sing me a rhyme
tell me why these things must be.
Maybe the people, perhaps the time
I only know I want kids to grow up to be free.

No one can tell how George White died
none of his family were there by his side.
For he taught them to run and he taught them to hide
and George was a very good teacher.

Now it's just a story but the meaning is clear
if you've got loved ones and you want them near
teach them to love don't teach them to fear
just like their parents before them.

Sing me a reason, sing me a rhyme
tell me why these things must be
maybe the people, perhaps the time
I only know I want kids to grow up to be free.

Private George White came back from the war
now what kind of freedom was he fighting for?



Collin Raye by The Eleventh Commandment

She hears his heavy breathing in the dark
His footsteps commin' closer down the hall
She's so ashamed she's daddy's secret love
She wants to die, she wants to cry
But he can't get enough

The bruses on his face will go away
Mom keeps him home from school 'til they fade
She's sorry he was born, and tells him so
He takes it in, he hangs his chin
He ducks another blow

Did God overlook it
What ought have been written
The Eleventh Commandment
Honor thy children

He cries for hours, cries and never stops
He shakes so hard his little craddle rocks
He'll never have the chance to be brand new
He'll never walk, he'll never talk
He's addicted, too

Did God overlook it
What ought have been written
The Eleventh Commandment
Honor thy children

Thou shall not kill
Thou shall not steal
Thou shall not take the Lords name in vain
Thou shall not cause thy children pain

God Does not overlook it
What ought have been written
The Eleventh Commandment
Honor thy children
Honor thy children



The Little Girl by John Michael Montgomery

Her parents never took the young girl to church
Never spoke of His name
Never read her His word
Two non-believers walking lost in this world
Took their baby with them
What a sad little girl

Her daddy drank all day and mommy did drugs
Never wanted to play
Or give kisses and hugs
She'd watch the TV and sit there on the couch
While her mom fell asleep
And her daddy went out

And the drinking and the fighting
just got worse every night
Behind their couch she'd be hiding
Oh what a sad little life
And like it always does, the bad just got worse
With every slap and every curse
Until her daddy in a drunk rage one night
Used a gun on her mom and then took his life

And some people from the city took the girl far away
To a new mom and dad
And kisses and hugs everyday
Her first day of Sunday school the teacher walked in
And a small little girl
Stared a picture of Him

She said I know that man up there on that cross
I don't know His name
But I know He got off
He was there in my old house
and held me close to His side
As I hid there behind our couch
The night that my parents died



Never Again by Nickelback

He's drunk again, it's time to fight
She must have done something wrong tonight
The living room becomes a boxing ring
It's time to run when you see him
Clenching his hands
She's just a woman
Never Again

I hear her scream, from down the hall
Amazing she can even talk at all
She cries to me, Go back to bed
I'm terrified that she'll wind up
Dead in his hands, She's just a woman
Never Again

Been there before, but not like this
Seen it before, but not like this
Never before have I ever
Seen it this bad
She's just a woman
Never Again

Just tell the nurse, you slipped and fell
It starts to sting as it starts to swell
She looks at you, she wants the truth
It's right out there in the waiting room
With those hands
Lookin just as sweet as he can
Never Again

Seen it before, but not like this
Been there before, but not like this
Never before have I ever
Seen it this bad
She's just a woman
Never Again

Father's a name you haven't earned yet
You're just a child with a temper
Haven't you heard "Don't hit a lady"?
Kickin' your ass would be a pleasure

He's drunk again, it's time to fight
Same old shit, just on a different night
She grabs the gun, she's had enough
Tonight she'll find out how fucking
Tough is this man
Pulls the trigger as fast as she can
Never Again

Seen it before, but not like this
Been there before, but not like this
Never before have I ever
Seen it this bad
She's just a woman
Never Again



Sarah Yellin' by Three Doors Down

She says, I got something to say
She knows what she says will change everything
She laid through so many sleepless nights
She’s crying, she’s crying, she’s crying

Mother, that man took my soul away
Father, how could you ever treat me this way
Brother, I won’t let him do this again
This time it’s over I’m gonna make it end
Now it’s over, the old man is dead
Lying on the ground, bullet in his head

She stood at the foot of the guilty bed last night
She held what she said for the rest of her life
She did all that she said that she planned to do
She’s through, she’s through, she’s through, yeah

Mother, that man took my soul away

Father, how could you ever treat me this way
Brother, I won’t let him do this again
This time it’s over I’m gonna make it end
Now it’s over, the old man is dead
Lying on the ground, bullet in his head

There’s a bullet in your head
I kept falling down, I kept falling down
I kept crying out, I kept crying out
I keep falling down, I keep falling down
I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready

Now it’s over, this is what she said
He’s lying on the ground, bullet in his head



Alyssa Lies by Jason Michael Carroll

My little girl met a new friend,
just the other day,
on the playground at school
between the tires and the swings

But she came home with tear-filled eyes,
and she said to me "Daddy, Alyssa lies"

Well I just brushed it off at first,
'cause I didn't know how much my little girl had been hurt
or the things she had seen.
I wasn't ready when I said "You can tell me"

and she said...

"Alyssa lies to the classroom,
Alyssa lies everyday at school,
Alyssa lies to the teachers
as she tries to cover every bruise"

My little girl laid her head down that night to go to sleep.
As I stepped out the room, I heard her say a prayer so soft and sweet
"God bless my mom and my Dad
and my new friend, Alyssa
*oh*I know she needs you bad

Because Alyssa lies to the classroom,
Alyssa lies everyday at school,
Alyssa lies to the teachers
as she tries to cover every bruise"

I had the worst night of sleep in years
as I tried to think of a way to calm her fears
I knew just what it was I had to do *I knew exactly what I had to do*
but when we got to school on Monday I heard the news

My little girl asked me why everybody looked so sad
the lump in my throat grew bigger
with every question that she asked.
Until I felt the tears run down my face
and I told her that Alyssa wouldn't be at school today

'Cause she doesn't lie in the classroom
she doesn't lie anymore at school
Alyssa lies with Jesus
because there's nothin' anyone would do

Tears filled my eyes when my little girl asked me why
Alyssa lies
*Oh Daddy, oh* Daddy tell me why
Alyssa lies
